Property finance

Helping you to support the UK's housing needs.

What we finance

We focus on making secured loans to property developers delivering residential-led schemes nationwide. We can also offer loans to trading businesses looking to build new or alter existing premises. 

We lend between £1 million - £10 million to experienced developers with the ability to go higher by exception.  

We can lend up to 90% loan-to-cost / 70% loan-to-gross-development value. We would expect a meaningful equity contribution from management on every deal. 

Our expertise

Downing has been investing in property development since we formed in 1986. We've worked across a range of sectors and have a wealth of experience. Our current property vehicle, Downing Development Finance, has committed loans of some £100 million. 

Our team has a wide-ranging background, supported by a number of technical specialists and consultants.
